Contribution, Family Activity Feed and Changes [closed]

+7 votes

Howdy, a quick question to educate myself.  Yesterday I was working on additions to the information on Renshaw-328, making 10 or 12 additions and modifications.  Now these showed up immediately on the Changes tab, however I am used to changes also showing up on the Family Activity Feed on my Nav page, which I use to keep tabs on work that I've done and as a quick link to the last/most recent profile worked on; Activity Feed on my page is very handy for me.  So I noticed when I came back to it later in the day, and again this morning, that the changes hadn't shown up on the Feed listing.  Don't usually keep track of my contributions numbers but it didn't appear to have changed much, although the changes are listed under the contributions list.

So I guess I'm wondering why the Activity Feed on my Navigation Home page isn't listing the changes for the ancestor listed above.  It makes me wonder if I'm doing something wrong all of a sudden and if so, how do I correct it so it doesn't come back to bite me later on.

Oops, already blew it trying to include a Family Activity Feed tag!
Check again tomorrow to see if they are there. I don’t think all of these lists have real time updates.
Fixed your tag by putting underscores in.
Thank you! Learning something new every day, keeping a few old brain cells active!

The Family Activity Feed is tied to your Watch List, Art:

This activity feed shows the recent edits and additions to all of the profiles in your Watchlist.

If you are not on the trusted list for a profile that you edit, you will not see your contribution in the Family Activity Feed. This feed lets you know when other WikiTreers edit profiles on your watchlist.

Your contributions will, of course, be on your Contributions page!

And the Wiki Genealogy Feed is tied to your tags.

You may now consider yourself sufficiently educated for today!!wink
